U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Interactive Training Module

We really like the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Regulatory Division’s interactive application module. The avatar, pictured at right, talks you through the permit application process in a training format.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers requires permits for building or developing in, on, or over wetlands and waters, and this interactive module will give you the guidelines and checklist for filling out and sending in a permit application form.

The interactive guide has a stop, pause, and play button so that you can use the help at any time while filling out the permit application form. You can also “Turn Guide Off” at any time if you would like to move ahead on your own.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Regulatory Program began in 1890 with the responsibility of protecting and maintaining the nations navigable waterways. As a result of changing public needs and evolving policy via new laws and court decisions, protection has been extended to all of the nations waters and wetland resources.
